We were there with a party of eight. It is very difficult to understand why on earth we were made to wait for our table because two in our party had not arrived yet. The table was ready and yet we were made to stand...in the aisle where servers were trying to get through with heavy trays of food. If we had been sat at our table we would have ordered drinks and appetizers which would have insured a better tip for our server. The hostess was not very welcoming. Your loss, we will not return.More

We stopped at Mack’s in Auburn Maine for late lunch/early dinner on Saturday. Busy place and now we know why! The steaks were excellent and the service exceptionally good.

HORRIBLE Service. Christina was our server. After waiting for an hour on our elusive steaks (Medium), which never arrived, and empty glasses of water for over 20 minutes with our server walking by and not checking on us, we left. Unreal!!! Subway here we come.

They use to serve bread and salad before the dinner. Apparently not anymore? Food was terrible. Mashed Potato tasted like dirt, as though they weren’t washed. Meat was supposed to have the tumbleweed rub on it and when I told the waitress she didn’t believe...me. Why would I lie? Coleslaw was prepackaged. Food was flavorless. Is there no chef in the kitchen? A complete waste of money. Never use to be so bad.More

I have been to Mac's several times and have always been served promptly. The staff is friendly and efficient, despite how busy they always seem to be. Mac's grill is where the locals go to eat. The food is very tasty and I would definitely...recommend them to anyone looking for a great place to eat in the L/A area.More

We used to get bread before our meal and a mint after. We were used to being greeted professionally and then when leaving asked how it was, thank you for coming and please come again real soon. We got nothing of the sort. In fact,...we had to excuse ourselves walking between three waitresses talking. It is the little things that bring you back. Not sure it’s worth bothering anymore. We can cook a steak for far less at home anyway. And also, what really topped it off - they no longer keep their bathrooms clean. If they don’t care then we don’t care to go there anymore.More

The fresh French fries they are known for were as greasy and overcooked as th fried haddock. Large portion but who wants to finish the plate when served like this? My 16 oz ribeye was ordered as medium rare and served as medium. Very disappointing...for a frequent diner at this restaurant.More

We went on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant already had quite a few people in both the dining room and bar. My husband had the Mini Mac which was a tender cut of sirloin steak with garlic mashed potatoes and pickled beets and a...beer from Lone Pine brewing. I had the parmesan crusted haddock with brussel sprouts and garlic mashed potatoes and a red sangria. Both meals were amazing and very flavorful. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. What a great place to eat!More

Used to have the best crab meat stuffed mushrooms.....now it's all filler and no lovely sauce. Baked stuffed haddock had terrible runny sauce. Summer squash and zucchini were overcooked and bland. Definitely not worth the $50 plus I paid.

Mac’s Grill catered an outdoor wedding reception for us last weekend. The food was fabulous! Everyone was asking who catered the event and raving about how delicious everything tasted. Thanks for your attention to detail and making our day extra special.

First time visit. Staff was prompt. Have to say I had the best blackened salmon with a lemon sauce that I have ever had anywhere. The steak was good as well but the salmon!! We will be back for sure next time in the area

Hey Karen, sorry I do not have an answer for you. They do have several dining rooms, but not sure if they reserve them for private groups.

They have a very good staff. I'm sure you could ask for them not to bread for the oven. It's a bit of a Western theme , if I remember they had some with a dry rub.
